Sealing Function : discover our new data sheet!

Pre-coating is an innovative and economical technique that advantageously replaces many sealing systems such as flat seals, O-rings, sealing pastes, anaerobic resins and Teflon strips.

Our special machinery allows us to produce small series (1000 pieces) as well as large series (1 million pieces) on a very wide range of applications.

PRESENTATION

The sealing function is often both complex and costly to obtain in mechanical assemblies. The pre-coating of fasteners makes it possible to ensure a completely reliable, easy-to-use seal with no installation costs.

The product we apply to your parts is dry, non-sticky and completely localized.

During assembly, whether by screwing, press fitting or crimping, fills in spaces in the assembly to ensure an immediate sealing.

A variety of fluids can be sealed using the pre-coating technique:

  • Compressed air and gas
  • Oils and hydrocarbons
  • Cooling liquids and brake liquid
  • Water for spraying or immersion
Sealing of engine stud threading – TB2353

BENEFITS

  • Elimination of costs for workshop or construction site assembly
  • Replaces O-rings or flat seals as well as difficult-toapply
    pastes and liquid resins.
  • Perfect seal: 100% sealing with no leakage
  • Flawless quality: the sealing system is guaranteed and visible
  • Immediate sealing after assembly, up to 50 bars for certain assemblies.
  • High admissible pressures
  • Sealing level of up to IP67
  • Control of technical parameters
  • High resistance to chemicals
  • Works on all types of metal as well as on plastic parts

#1 / UNDER HEADS SEALING OF SCREWS AND CRIMPED PARTS

Pre-coating involves applying a bead of product under the heads of screws for an immediate seal following assembly. Their re-use  depends on the shape and profile of the interface.

Sealing of screwed parts :

  • M2 to M4 electronics screws
  • Screws for plastic
  • Standard screws
  • Threaded plugs

Sealing of crimped parts :

  • Blind rivet nuts
  • Clinch studs
  • Small head rivet nuts
Sealing under heads
precote-200 crimping nut
Sealing under heads of threaded screws for plastic – Precote 200

PERFORMANCES

  • Tension is maintained in screwed assemblies as the metal-to-metal contact is maintained.
  • Compact sealing function design
  • No added parts (washers, paste, etc.)
  • Streamlined industrial process: automatic assembly using a vibrating bowl, etc.
  • A lower overall cost than traditional solutions

#2 / SEALING OF THREADED PARTS

Sealing on automotive plug threading – TB2353

APPLICATIONS

  • Screws, axis, studs
  • Stoppers and connectors for fluids
  • Sensor and contactor plugs
  • Special parts
Precote 15 - special sealing part

Pre-coated parts can be used for a variety of applications including electronics, automobiles, motorcycles, household appliances, electric motors…

PERFORMANCES

  • A more effective substitute for flat seals and O-rings
  • Prevents loss of clamping force due to vibration
  • Simplified industrialization in air, water or oil circuits
  • Good heat and chemical resistance

#3 / SEALING OF TUBES AND SOCKETED PARTS

Soprima has developed special expertise in the pre-coating of socketed parts.

Our pre-coating technique for tubes, axis and other smooth parts offers superior technical performance and substantial savings in a variety of sectors

APPLICATIONS

  • Pump outlet cannula and rigid pipes
  • Press-fitted socketed smooth nozzles
  • Grit removal plugs
Sealing on grit removal plugs – TB2353
Sealing on fitted connectors – TB2353

This type of sealing is primarily used in the automotive sector to seal many engine components.

PERFORMANCES

  • Robust sealing for automobile fluid circuits
  • 0 ppm application quality on large series
  • Replaces Banjo-type threaded connectors
  • Effective on aluminium, steel or stainless steel bar-turned tubing or seamless drawn tubing
  • Replaces in-line bonded grit removal caps

#4 / SEALING COMBINED WITH LOCKING FUNCTION

Fasteners to be sealed can also be secured to prevent loosening by adding a locking product to the threading: a micro-encapsulated adhesive such as threadlock or polyamide resin for repositionable parts.

Under some conditions (fluid, pressure, assembly design), locking products can also provide the sealing function on the threading.
